We gave it a B+

On the tumultuous first track of The Closer You Get, U.K. lads Six By Seven come on like a mad health teacher, yelping ”If you eat junk/ You become junk.” On ”Sawn Off Metallica T-shirt,” they rage about ”a really bad f—ing haircut” and brag about having a ”backseat for a bed.” But just when you think they’re all about cathartic, if juvenile, guitar rock, they unleash the lovely ”Ten Places to Die.” Here’s to schizophonia. B+
